Job 18
American King James Version

Bildad: God Punishes the Wicked

1Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,

2How long will it be ere you make an end of words? mark, and afterwards we will speak.

3Why are we counted as beasts, and reputed vile in your sight?

4He tears himself in his anger: shall the earth be forsaken for you? and shall the rock be removed out of his place?

5Yes, the light of the wicked shall be put out, and the spark of his fire shall not shine.

6The light shall be dark in his tabernacle, and his candle shall be put out with him.

7The steps of his strength shall be straitened, and his own counsel shall cast him down.

8For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he walks on a snare.

9The gin shall take him by the heel, and the robber shall prevail against him.

10The snare is laid for him in the ground, and a trap for him in the way.

11Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, and shall drive him to his feet.

12His strength shall be extremely hungry, and destruction shall be ready at his side.

13It shall devour the strength of his skin: even the firstborn of death shall devour his strength.

14His confidence shall be rooted out of his tabernacle, and it shall bring him to the king of terrors.

15It shall dwell in his tabernacle, because it is none of his: brimstone shall be scattered on his habitation.

16His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above shall his branch be cut off.

17His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and he shall have no name in the street.

18He shall be driven from light into darkness, and chased out of the world.

19He shall neither have son nor nephew among his people, nor any remaining in his dwellings.

20They that come after him shall be astonished at his day, as they that went before were affrighted.

21Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked, and this is the place of him that knows not God.
